Commerce and culture meet on Main Street in downtown Tigard. This special event invites artists out of their studios, museums and galleries and into downtown Tigard for an arts themed event. Join local artists and businesses for a weekend of art in Downtown Tigard. Shop, dine, stroll and explore the arts — street side.  Join your friends downtown for the fourth year of this event and celebrate art in our community.

During the 2017 Downtown Art Walk, artists will be paired with businesses for an exploration of commerce and culture. Several businesses have been invited to host a Friday evening Meet the Artists event from 5:00-7:00PM with snacks and refreshments. Downtown visitors are invited to stop by for snacks, light refreshments, and a chat with an artist. Each featured artist will have some of their work on display during the Meet the Artists open house.

On Saturday, May 13th featured artists will setup and create a live art piece in front of their host business. Artists in all mediums including, but not limited to, acrylic, oil, watercolor, photography, metal, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, and glass are welcome to participate.

There are two way artists can participate in the Downtown Tigard Artwalk. Artists have the option of applying to be one of ten Featured Artists or being included in the pop-up gallery, where artists can display their art and sell their work for a small commission. All applications will be reviewed by a committee.

“The Downtown Tigard Artwalk was created to invite visitors into downtown Tigard to celebrate commerce and culture,” said Tigard Downtown Alliance Board President, Steve DeAngleo. “This event is a great activity for families on Mother’s Day weekend.”

Established in 2014, the Tigard Art Walk is sponsored by the Tigard Downtown Alliance, a local nonprofit dedicated to building a vibrant and thriving Downtown. Proceeds from the Tigard Art Walk are used to support the event, by covering the juried contest prize money, publicity, and additional event costs.
